Getty Library Research Grants, 2017

GRANT: Library Research Grants, The Getty Foundation, 2017.

Getty Library Research Grants provide partial, short-term support for costs relating to travel and living expenses for scholars whose research requires use of specific collections housed in the Getty Research Institute. A Library Research Grant is not a prerequisite for obtaining access to the Research Library. During this grant cycle, at least one grant will be targeted toward an innovative use of the library’s special collections for a digital art history project relevant to collecting or the art market.

Library Research Grants are intended for scholars of all nationalities and at any level who demonstrate a compelling need to use materials housed in the Research Library, and whose place of residence is more than eighty miles from the Getty Center. Projects must relate to specific items in the library collection.

Library Research Grants are intended to provide partial support for costs relating to travel and living expenses. Grants range from $800 to $3,000, depending on the distance traveled. The research period may range from several days to a maximum of three months. Applicants are notified of the Research Institute’s decision approximately six weeks to two months following the deadline.

Applicants are required to complete and submit the online Library Research Grant application form (which includes uploading a Project Proposal; Curriculum Vitae; Selected Bibliography of Research Library Collections you wish to consult; and Proposed Estimated Travel Costs) by the deadline. Two letters of recommendation are also required for this application.

Deadline: 17 October 2016.
